LONGMEADOW – Jonathan and Susan Goldsmith and their children, Paul, Sam, and Stephen, were honored on May 27, at Lubavitcher Yeshiva Academy’s Scholarship Reception, titled Generations of Goodness. Almost 190 family, friends, and LYA community supporters gathered to honor the Goldsmiths.
The Goldsmiths spoke of their involvement at LYA since their oldest son, Paul, now a college graduate of Syracuse University, signed up in preschool. The Goldsmiths’ three sons each attended LYA preschool and Hebrew school. “LYA has given back to the Goldsmith family and to our entire Greater Springfield community – a love and understanding of our Jewish faith,” Susan said.
Family friends Stuart and Michelle Anfang introduced the Goldsmith family, and presented them with a gift from the school, a paper-cut Home Blessing by Ruben Masal.
Jonathan Goldsmith served as treasurer of LYA and is a past president of Temple Beth El. He is now president of the Springfield Public Forum, is a member of the board of directors of the Springfield JCC and is active in many civic and professional organizations. He is a partner in the Springfield law firm of Goldsmith, Katz & Argenio, P.C. He is a Bankruptcy Trustee and a recent recipient of the Pro Bono Award from the Massachusetts Bar Association.
Susan is active in several organizations and serves as a board member at Jewish Lifecare, Peoples Bank, and Holyoke Community College Foundation. She is the president of the third generation family-owned business, Marcus Printing Co.
A video featuring Rabbi Dovid Edelman, teachers, students and parents was unveiled during the program. The video was filmed and produced by Knoxworx Multimedia and sponsored by Peoples Bank in Holyoke. A lively fast-paced auction led by Dr. Mitchell Kupperman raised an additional $7,600 for the school.
